2020 year-end member benefits

Members can take extra advantage of Ohio Farm Bureau member benefits at the end of 2020. For example, any member thinking about purchasing a Ford vehicle can benefit from the company doubling the normal $500 bonus cash offered to members to $1,000. This means that $1,000 comes right off the top of a new Ford purchase. This increased discount will only run through Jan. 4, 2021. (Some restrictions apply.)

December also is an ideal time to enroll in the Ohio Farm Bureau Energy Program. With gas and electric prices at record lows, the program shops daily for the most competitive rates, lets members choose the contract length and then manages the contract on their behalf. The program has already saved members over $187,000 in utility costs since its inception.

Thinking of travel in 2021? The Ohio Farm Bureau Travel Program is planning ahead, too. While 20 members traveled successfully to the alpine regions of Austria, Germany and Switzerland in 2019, travel will be stateside in the coming year. Because of COVID-19, Farm Bureau has adjusted to North American trips only and is offering two trips in the summer and fall of 2021.  First, the Canadian Rockies by Train, which travels to Vancouver, Banff, Lake Louise and the Canadian Rockies July 29 – Aug. 6, 2021. Then, Discover the Canyon Country, which explores the American Southwest Sept. 3-10, 2021.

Having opportunities to attend leadership institutes, advocate for rural Ohioans on the state and national level, facilitate young ag professionals events, and serve in a variety of leadership positions have helped my skills grow exponentially.

Growing our Generation
Labor has always been an issue, mainly because we are a seasonal operation. So that's a challenge finding somebody who only wants to work three months out of a year, sometimes up to six months.

If it wasn't for Farm Bureau, I personally, along with many others, would not have had the opportunity to meet with our representatives face to face in Washington.

Washington, D.C. Leadership Experience
I was gifted the great opportunity through an Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Youth Pathways grant to run a series of summer camps here. That really expanded my vision of what ‘grow, maintain, sustain and explain’ could actually be.

Farming for Good
I see the value and need to be engaged in the community I live in, to be a part of the decision-making process and to volunteer with organizations that help make our community better.

So many of the issues that OFBF and its members are advocating for are important to all Ohioans. I look at OFBF as an agricultural watchdog advocating for farmers and rural communities across Ohio.
